Donâ€™t let the crying fool you â€“ theyâ€™re happy tears!
Kelly Clarkson revealed that sheâ€™s expecting her second child with husband Brandon Blackstock during Wednesdayâ€™s Los Angeles tour stop at the Staples Center.
The surprise announcement came while the American Idol winner, 33, was making her way through â€œPiece By Piece.â€ After holding back tears while introducing the song, Clarkson found herself struggling to get a handle on her emotions.
Instead, the singer stopped and told the crowd: â€œI was not planning on announcing this, butÂ â€¦Â Iâ€™m totally pregnant. Iâ€™m having a really hard time,â€ she explained of her inability to get through the song, which is both a kiss-off to her father and a paean to her husband for being a good dad.
â€œIâ€™m gonna nail the sâ€” out of this song. That was not how I wanted to announce that â€¦ I hate this song right now,â€ she joked while wiping away tears. â€œMy makeup artist is backstage hating me right now. I just donâ€™t want you to think Iâ€™m on pills or drunk.â€
After finally getting through the tune, ClarksonÂ said, â€œIâ€™d like to apologize to my husband. That was not planned. I just didnâ€™t want you to think I was crazy or something.Â Honestly, Iâ€™m just so hormonal today. â€¦Â I havenâ€™t vomited yet. That is a freakinâ€™ win, yâ€™all.â€
The couple are already parents to daughter River Rose, 14 months. Blackstock is also father to sonÂ SethÂ and daughterÂ SavannahÂ from his previous marriage.
â€œThis is going to be a fun show emotionally,â€ Clarkson continued after singing her hit â€œBreakaway.â€ â€œYou know whatâ€™s not easy to do when youâ€™re crying and choking up? Singing.â€
â€œIâ€™m so nervous to talk to my husband,â€ she added before covering Demi Lovatoâ€˜s â€œCool for the Summer.â€ â€œWe havenâ€™t even told our [extended] family!â€
